The first ever Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas went off without a hitch! Congratulations to the staff and Insomniac for doing a great job and providing one of the best weekends of the year for almost a quarter million people. Getting together for such an amazing, talent-filled and fun loving event is really what keeps us going at Golden Bloggen.

Many Los Angelinos complained about the event’s move to another state, but no one who made the trek was complaining by the end. Las Vegas knows how to host a party and with 6 stages and 200 performers over 3 nights, this party was MASSIVE. We will follow Insomniac wherever they take the party next year!

We thought the move to underage unfriendly Las Vegas would weed out the 18-20 year old crowd that has dominated EDC in the past, but the troopers came out firing. The costumes from the crowd and performers were amazing and really added to the whole carnival experience. There was a dubstep stage, a chillout grassy stage, main stage, dance “tent” (more of a LED spine) and various attractions like a Heineken dome, marching band, Ferris Wheel, and more. EDC was really done right!

Our winners of the weekend were Tiesto and Laidback Luke with many other honorable mentions. My personal peak was when Tiesto dropped Avicii’s new hit “Levels” and everyone in the crowd GOT. IT. ON. When I heard the vocals “Ooooohhhhhh sometimes… I get a good feeling”, chills went through the entire crowd. That moment definitely put a smile on everyone’s face.

EDC once again proved to be a great place to let loose, have some fun and meet new people while listening to the best DJs in the world. We really look forward to Insomniacs upcoming events like Audiotistic and Nocturnal. See the links below for more info and purchase your tickets now because you definitely don’t want to get shut out!

    Good to hear it was a great weekend. Tiesto doing “Levels” sounds awesome.


  2. […] Avicii is by no means a new name at this point, as he’s been touring non stop in the last year hitting all the big festivals including the recent Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. I’m mentioning him because there is just something in his latest releases that is bringing me back to what I loved about trance music back in the day. Avicii’s releases aren’t all trance, but the fact that I’m at all drawn to his blend of progressive/trance releases is astonishing. I seriously dislike trance music these days, but he’s bringing me back to my roots and he deserves credit. Put down your preconceptions and give this one a shot. It’s five and a half minutes of pure fun. Grab the free download Here […]
